- Crash: Extraordinary at First View, Ordinary Upon Critique
Sheila ran out of our English classroom in tears. Several friends bombarded her with sympathy and comments on Miss Jís mindless comments concerning Sheilaís Iranian ancestry, but they didnít understand. Her family was kind, loving and compassionate; how dare our English teacher state that no Iranians cared about anything but their own country? In the form of a good friendís experience, this crude generalization was my first time witnessing racism firsthand, but it was certainly not my last. T...

" The Doors. There's the known. And there's the unknown. And what
separates the two is the door, and that's what I want to be. Ahh wanna be th'
door. . ."
- Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison is often thought of as a drunk musician. He is also
portrayed to many as an addict and another 'doped up' rock star. These
negative opinions project a large shadow on the many positive aspects of
this great poet. Jim's mus...
- The Syrian Bride
The Syrian Bride
The Syrian bride turned out to be a fairly interesting story about a young Druze woman whose family, although they live in Israel, still considers themselves Syrian. The film while on the surface seems to be about Mona and her impending marriage also comes across as a dig at how ridiculous the tension between many Arab countries and Israel can be. Although I donít know very much about the various marriage customs of that society except that arranged marriage is not at all ...
- Human vs Robots
In Blade Runner, the story reflects on how a thin line separates humans and replicants. Human beings, although almost visually indistinguishable from replicants, are comparable to robots, having lost our humanity and performing tasks like robots.
The routine life that humans have everyday can be compared to the function of a robot. Through the Voight-Kampff test in the movie, we can understand that there is high possibility of manipulating a robot with identical human features. For example, ...
- Cartoons effects
Todays cartoons have had a negative effect on children. They teach kids that yelling at someone who is stealing from you to stop, will make them stop. These kids will most likely grow up to be easy targets for theft. They will also be more likely to be murder victims because they will not realize running away would be a better option then telling the attacker off. Another thing wrong with cartoons today is they are either exteremly over educated or just plain stupid. When your child finds no enj...
Douglas McGregorís X and Y theory recommends that the organisation follows one out of the two approaches in their management. Below is a brief summary of both theories:
This theory states that the average worker is lazy and does not like to work and will do anything to avoid working, the theory also states that the worker has to be closely supervised, controlled and pressurized in order to work.
This theory is a clear opposite of theory X, it states that the average employe...

- Wnat some guitar tabs?
This song consists of a rhythm guitar part (played by Chris Goss on the studio recording) and one badass lead guitar part (courtesy of Dave Catching) with a Westerny feel to it. I'm tabbing this out on an acoustic guitar, listening to a version from one of Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli's acoustic sets so these lead guitar licks represent that more than the studio. There are many little fills played on the lead guitar throughout this song. I've provided a few of these little riffs but, i...
- Valkryie Movie Reflection
January 11, 2009
For my culture project, I attended the movie, Valkyrie. This movie takes place in Europe, mostly in Germany, during the time when Hitler conquered over all. Tom Cruise played Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, the real-life mastermind behind Project Valkyrie- the plan to kill Hitler, reconstruct German government and change the world.
Claus Von Stauffenberg did not believe in Adolf Hitlerís customs although he did work under his government. Von Stauffenberg believed that not on...
- Cool Hand Luke
Cool Hand Luke
In Cool Hand Luke, the movie begins with the word, VIOLATION, across the screen. The word is from a parking meter and sets the tone for the entire movie. Luke Jackson, the title character, is arrested for cutting off the heads of the town's parking meters while drunk, or in legal terms, for destroying municipal property while under the influence of alcohol. When asked why he cut the heads off the parking meters, Luke answers, "You could say I was settling an old score." While it ...

It is one that is quite popular and has even been developed into an animated movie by Walt Disney Pictures.

Scully and Mulder are two FBI agents that were sent to investigate murders that took place in a New Mexico town, just out side of an Indian reservation. The murders were first discovered when a lady, Annie Hatch, found two touristís bodies while she was ridding her horse. The bodies were laying next to a van. When Annie went closer to the bodies, she could see that there was hundreds of flies on them. When she looked closer she could see that they had been skinned. The foll...
- Monty Python
The very essence of Contemporary Theatre is that is such a diverse realm of performance art. Many different playwrights have contributed to this post World War Two theatre that instead of keeping to just one narrow genre it was able to branch out to cover all aspects and views of an ever transitional modern society. Theatrical pieces from this time period have ranged from Existentialism, pioneered by Jean Paul Sartre, to the Theatre of the Absurd, which was precedented by Samuel Be...
